First I am a keen amateur photographer who has been using DSLR for two years and is looking for a P&S to leave in my bag to take everywhere. Low-light performance doesn't worry me since I will use my DSLR for it if needed. Pros - The image quality is excellent up to ISO200, and quite OK at ISO400 but I probably won't be using anything higher than that. - swivel LCD is very handy and one of the reason I chose it over Panasonic models in this price range - very easy to use. I found myself ...

For a while I was very against point-and-shoot cameras; all I owned were SLRs, TLRs, and Rangefinders. I liked having complete control over how my pictures came out and I didn't trust a point-and-shoot to do the same job. A few months ago I decided to invest in a point-and-shoot because I didn't want to have to worry about exposure, focus, and the like at family gatherings and when I was hanging out with my friends. I was very skeptical at first, but after using the Canon PowerShot A630 ...

Finally upgraded my PowerShot A80 to this baby for $213 after tax out the door and they almost look and feel the same. The A630 is lighter, not as much metal, so doesn't feel as strong; LCD is much larger on A630 and best of all, everything is familiar in terms of feel and navigation. My wife dropped the A630 on concrete before I even got a chance to take four pictures. It dented a lot and one edge opened a bit but it seems to work fine. I think being lighter actually helped in this case. Vid ...

A very good camera for the money. Large tilt and swivel screen, but hard to see in daylight. Plenty of good features for the beginner as well as the more advanced shooter. However Canon left off remote shooting, minus points for that. Problems: NO REMOTE SHOOTING from the computer that almost every Canon has had for many years. BOO! Absurd 16mb SD card. Back to the store it goes.

I have Nikon D50 and A630 as a second camera and for me it is dreamteam ;) A630 has superb image quality, good control over exposition, panorama mode, incredible battery livetime, pivoted screen. Histogram is the only thing i'm missing. My first choide for compact was Nikon S10, but forget about it...( I've used S10 one day and changed it in shop for A630 because of hotpixels and overall average quality)

Have had the camera for about four months and have taken about 500 shots. I was generally satisfied with image quality and ease of use. Wanted small, fairly rugged camera for use on hikes etc. so from outward appearance (metal body) A630 seemed to fit the bill. However encounter what I think is a version of the dreaded E18 error that a Google search shows is found with many Canon point-and- shoot cameras. Camera was not dropped or abused. It has riddden in its case in my knapsack on walks ...

Disappointed with color & Auto-focus. Two months ago I bought a Canon A630. I've taken several hundred shots, mostly outdoors (visiting Thailand) and of our puppy indoors. The colors are flat, photos lack clarity, the gimmick scene modes are useless, and in the Auto setting the focus is undependable. I like the shutter-priority mode (very much), and in program mode I changed things (like center focus instead of multi-point) which gives me dependable results. I can also get decent colors via ...

Picture quality - normal - I'm beginner - so might not know about correct usage of options. Features - those avalable - function superb. After 2 month & over 1500 shots (including *.avi) Sattisfyed. ELSE... it would be a needed option to have TWAIN-compatible control driver for camera to use it instead of scanner. Well .... Inspite of some "improovment idea" below, the camera is VERY good for it's price (~ 370 USD in my country) Problems: Construction - SD/MMC under same cover with ...

The camera is all that a novice can want. You can read that in the many posts allready. But ... I returned mine. See problems Problems: All the movies I've taken have a anoying hiss. A very audible high pitch. It was that anoying that I brought it back to the store. Apparently a few other powershot camera's also have the same problem. (there's not much written about this problem I've noticed) I;m now considering the canon s-2 or s-3. But I wander if they have the same problem...
